  • Rumour has it the Duchess of Cambridge is getting a little help in the style department

    With her sartorial choices now some of the most scrutinised in the world, Kate Middleton has reportedly hired a team of personal shoppers to help plan her wardrobe for her impending tour of the US and Canada.

    While the new Duchess of Cambridge has refused to hire a stylist, it’s understood that she has been consulting with fashion advisers at London department stores Harvey Nichols and Selfridges to help her assemble a new wardrobe for her first trip abroad as a member of the royal family. Reports suggest that the newlywed will take a total of 40 outfits on the 11-day trip kicking off in Ottawa, Canada next week.

    One of the personal shoppers is believed to be the same person that her husband, Prince William, and his brother, Prince Harry, consult when doing their Christmas shopping.

    Both department stores stock some of Kate’s favourite designers, including Issa, as well as the high street labels she wears time and time again, such as Reiss and Whistles. However, with such a wide array of luxury fashion labels to choose from we’re a tad excited, to say the least, to see what outfits she’s going to wear.
